Re: NFL.com has it spot-on
Patriots are loved by the media because they've got it done the last few years. I believe they deserve all the credit they're given. On the other hand, I believe the Steelers will beat them on Sunday. The Steelers, in Pittsburgh, will not allow the Pats to do what they did last year. The offense and defense are too healthy, and prepared to let that happen. The media won't stop after this game, the headlines will probably say the Pats lost due to penalties, or injuries (if they lose). Pittsburgh doesn't need the media to boost their minds before a game, I'd prefer them side with NE.
